Handmade furniture and
notice boards in English oak
from a locally managed estate

As part of our commitment towards a sustainable environment we've initiated a scheme through Woodland Heritage whose patron is HRH the Prince of Wales - to plant an oak tree, for every notice board sold.

Harry at work.


The Harry Stebbing Workshop produces traditional furniture and notice boards, all handmade by craftsmen to the very highest standards, using English Oak (bought from a National Trust property in East Anglia which also has FSC certification) not European oak.

We pride ourselves on quality and care, whether you’re looking for church furniture, a notice board, or memorial bench; all our products receive the same care and attention to detail as the finest piece of furniture, combining high specifications with realistic pricing, and a product that will last.

We’re safeguarding the future of ancient woodland by planting an oak tree for every item sold, an initiative we set up with Woodland Heritage, whose patron is HRH The Prince of Wales. This enables us to use the finest English Oak together with an exceptionally durable blend of natural oils as a finishing agent, which penetrates deep into the wood with no danger of cracking or blistering.

All of our notice boards and signage boards are glazed with unbreakable polycarbonate (used in the windows of the Space Shuttle!) and equipped with solid brass fittings. They come with stove enamelled box section sockets, so the wooden posts are protected from the elements and not concreted directly into the ground.

You can see we build things to last, like our memorial benches - solidly crafted, with two and three inch thick English Oak that should last a lifetime, coupled with discreet below-ground fixings to ensure your bench stays where you put it.

From finely crafted church furniture, to honours and signage boards, and memorial benches that are made to last, the Harry Stebbing workshop is proud to specialise in English Oak – anything else would be a compromise.
